Born Pretty Black Swan Water Decals: Review & Swatches

Born Pretty Store's water decals are probably my all-time favorite nail art product. They're so fun and easy to use, plus they make it look like you spent hours on your nails, when really all it took was a few minutes. They work just like a temporary tattoo: cut 'em, wet 'em, then stick 'em on. Cover with topcoat and voila: instant mini masterpieces on your nails!

This time around, we'll be checking out some black swan water decals. I love the movie "Black Swan" and that's what instantly came to mind when I saw these decals. I paired them with Illamasqua Scorch, a white creme, to create a look that's more minimalist and that lets the decals really take center stage.

It just dawned on me that I'm kind of continuing the feather theme from yesterday's post for Butter London Branwen's Feather. It wasn't intentional! Anywho, the decals were a breeze to apply. I only used about half of them for this mani (both hands), so I still have plenty left over for another time. I think next time I'm going to try them over a nice neutral grey. The whole set will only set you back $1.99, so that's just one buck a mani!
